Tom Reynolds a multi time SCCA national trophy winner.
He is currently racing a new ND Miata in STR and talks a bit about the power and weight compared to the class. He is always looking for a daily driver he can compete in. (and in general always looking which helps him compete with Annie and Danny for the Lazlo's dinner)
He has a lot of great advice about how he learned. He has trophied in a variety of classes including STR, FS, STX, RTA, RT4 and F125.
He took his first car and built it for SM (something he says he will not do again).
He credits buying a competitive car with becoming competitive which I totally agree with. At first be a lemming and copy what works!
He has taken EVO schools and credits Brian Peters, Sam Strano and Andrew Pallotta for helping him improve.
His first autocross car was a Mitsubishi Eclipse GST (I so wanted one of those back when they were new).
His favorite car was his 1st C5 Z06. He is a right foot braker who would build a CM or BM car with an unlimited budget - those of you with one to sell should entice him by letting him know. 😉
